Thank you @Aaliaa for starting this thread, and giving us a place to share our love for masksπŸ’—

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@missjeanie  Yep, me too. I remember "oooo-ing" at when I got it in my Facetory sub.  πŸ˜‚

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Aside from the crazy, fit this sounds like a pretty good one, @Shosh85

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@quspork  This was definitely not made for the face of a human πŸ˜‚πŸ₯΄  

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Oh wow @Shosh85! 😳 This mask had a lot going on from a fit perspective, eh? With the overall largeness it sounds like it would be able to fit a lot of face shapes and sizes although it may be a lot extra for most folks. Hmmm... πŸ€” I’m always so fascinated by how brands decide which shape/size they want for their sheet masks. The package illustration is very pretty though, and the ingredients list looks really good. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  Yeah, sometimes I wonder how they come up with the shape/size of these masks. A nice fitting mask is always great, but fit has never really been a deal breaker for me, since that can always be tweaked/adjusted. I think it just threw me off because most black masks have fit so well. The results from this one definitely make up for the bad fit πŸ˜ƒ

This was my mask last night. It did leave my forehead red but that was gone in the morning. A little bit oily but I really liked how my skin looked otherwise.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

I loved this brand @Samtian I have not seen these at marshalls in awhile, but if I see them,,I grab them

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@lmaster Ooh that is good to hear! I wish I had one near me. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Is this one you’d repurchase or use again @Samtian? I’ve heard of the brand but not this particular mask. It sounds interesting but at the same time, the β€œmarine” part of the name makes me wonder if there’s an ingredient that might not play so nice with my skin. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi @Samtian  I'm just gonna butt in here - the "Marine" refers to the kelp and algae that's in it. I have heard of those ingredients causing irritation - do those bother your skin, itsfi?

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85 Ignore that lol I found the answer at the top.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85 Does kelp have another name, or what is its scientific name? I had seen algae like way at the bottom haha but my eyes keep glazing over trying to look at it all. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Samtian  Haha! I find myself glazing over the ingredient lists all the time. Google has been very helpful for me, lol πŸ˜‚

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Yes! But not all kinds @Shosh85 @Samtian As far as I have been able to pinpoint, it is usually kelp that causes my skin much unhappiness. I know that if the mask material is made of kelp or is an actual piece of kelp, it is a big "NO" unless of course, I'm going for that red-splotches-scattered-all-over-my-face look, which isn't a good look on me. πŸ˜† I think I've used some sheet masks with kelp in it before and it's been okay, but I tend to avoid it as an ingredient. I've actually learned more about seaweed than I ever thought I would, as a result of my reaction to kelp.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi Nope, red and splotchy is not a good look for me either 😬 Didn't @eshoe say she had a bad reaction to the ingredient "chondrus crispus," (aka Irish Moss)?" πŸ€”

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85 it is possible, I have had an adverse reaction to blue spirulina.From my understanding it’s possible to have one variety of kelp cause issues, while others may notπŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi I would use it again. Here's the ingredients, hopefully they aren't too small to read.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Thank you @Samtian!  πŸ€— I can read the ingredients. Will do a more careful read soon. Thanks again!! 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Samtian  I've heard good things about this one! Glad to hear it turned out decent for you! The picture on the packaging always makes me think of popsicles for some reason πŸ˜‰

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Did someone say popsicles? @Shosh85 @Samtian πŸ˜‹

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Hahaha! Shoulda known that would get your attention @itsfi!  πŸ˜‚
